A question on the laws
Opening leader is required to lead a spade after partner's lead out of turn. He fails to do so despite having one. That is a revoke.
Web Movement?
Right; it just results in the bumping pair playing twice (or more!) against the stationary EW at the party table.
Web Movement?
The bump schedule for an odd web is easy (just like a bump Mitchell round the bottom full section, so for 15 or more tables, it is sit-out,2,4,6,8,10,12,1,3,5,7,9,11). For even webs, bump schedules follow no regular pattern, and ...

To much talk
I agree with most of what you say, though it is impossible to tell which meaning was intended in the OP. I think that it is important to be as precise as possible in choice of words when discussing rulings. Many of us have known instances of inexperienced club directors ...
To much talk
Whether there should be an adjusted score depends on whether there was damage. Presumably there was, otherwise this would not have been posted, but we need to know how many tricks could be available in no trumps, spades and clubs (recognizing that the answers may vary according to lines available ...
What do you need to bid 2!h here
Since I don't have 2, options 2 through 6 are moot. I guess we should assume that 5 is an honorary deuce for this poll.
